Musician Kristín Anna Valtýsdóttir talks about her collaboration with Ragnar Kjartansson. 

Kristín Anna has been a long-time collaborator of Ragnar Kjartansson and participated in the production of numerous performances and video works. These include The Visitors and the World light – Life and Death of an Artist. She has also composed music for works of Ragnar, for example  Forever Love, which premiered at the Eaux Claires festival 2015. The record label Bel-Air Glamor Records, which is Records, curated by Ragnar Kjartansson and Ingibjörg Sigurjónsdóttir, released  Kristín Anna album Howl in 2015.
